Variety reports that Mattel is launching a line of “Mario Kart”-themed Hot Wheels cars next year, the toymaker told Mashable on Wednesday.

The licensed toys made their debut at San Diego Comic-Con, and can be seen in-person at both the Mattel and Nintendo booths for the duration of the convention, which is being held from July 18 to July 22. So far, characters confirmed for inclusion in the toy line include Rosalina (Super Mario Galaxy), Wario (Super Mario Land 2), Toad (Super Mario Bros.), Luigi (Mario Bros.), Bowser (Super Mario Bros.), Princess Peach (Super Mario Bros.), and the titular jumpman himself.
